Rocky Point

Located within the 15,000 acre marine reserve Bacalar Chico, Rocky Point is a well-visited section of coral reef that is alive with sea life.

Rocky Point, where the crest and back of exposed reef stick out of the water, is one of the better known foundations of Bacalar Chico that once thrived underwater when sea levels were higher.

A visit to Rocky Point will often give visitors a chance to see nearly 200 species of birds, 60 species of reptile, 22 species of amphibian, and 40 species of mammals. There are also several Mayan sites in the area.


Rocky Point is located on the northeastern part of the island of Ambergris Caye; it's 17.0 miles to the northeast of San Pedro.

Rocky Point is only accessible by sea from several points on Ambergris Caye as well as X'calak, a town in Mexico. It is best to arrange for a tour guide to take you out.
